Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker

Pressure cookers have been around a long time, but many are still unaware of the value they add to one’s kitchen. Some people are still stuck on the high-pitched screeching sound that scared them out of the kitchen whenever their parents used the pressure cooker back in the day. The modern designs have taken care of that and made the pressure cooker safer and more efficient. There are many benefits of using a pressure cooker, including reduced cooking time and nutrient retention. Pressure cookers trap energy and steam inside to ensure all the energy produced is used to cook the food. That significantly reduces the cooking time, meaning the process only destroys fewer nutrients. Also, locking in moisture makes the food tasty because only a small amount of water is required to cook. With a pressure cooker, you do not need many other pans to perfect your meal, and the cooking area will not be as messy afterward as when you use regular pots. Instant Pot’s Duo Nova 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker covers all that and offers even more.

This product is best for beginners. It is an upgrade from the all-time bestseller Instant Pot Duo series, combining seven appliances in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute pan, food warmer, and yogurt maker. The 3Qt “Mini” model is perfect for cooking for up to three people. You can use it to make rice, vegetables, or side dishes. The Meat/Stew Smart Program cooks beef and pork to your satisfaction – from rare to fall-off-the-bone. On the other hand, the Poultry Smart Program cooks moist and tender chicken, turkey, and other poultry, even frozen.

Duo Nova is powered by a sophisticated microprocessor that monitors and adjusts pressure, temperature, time, and heat to cook up to 70% faster than other methods. Fast as it is, it delivers consistent, delicious, and healthy results every time. The pressure cooker features a smart lid. This new and easy seal lid automatically seals your Instant Pot, locking in all the flavors, nutrients, and aromas in your meal. You only need to push the quick-release button to release the steam faster and let the pressure out. The lid comes with a bonus sealing ring.

There are more than ten safety features with UL certification, letting you “set it and forget it.” You can continue to do other things and let the Duo Nova cooker take care of your dinner safely and quickly. While at it, it produces a minimal mess that is easy to clean up. Also, the pressure cooker has clear and simple controls. Its elegant blue LCD intuitively indicates the cooking process for you to know what is happening inside. The thirteen programs can be customized using a single touch to remember how you want your food cooked. This cooking pot is dishwasher-safe, durable, and has no chemical coating.

My husband is a Masterchef in the kitchen. He had been making do with our 6qt for quite some time. We considered just buying another 6qt to add to the mix, but after some research, we came across this Wolly Mammoth size 10 qt and took a chance. A success! Today he loaded 10lbs of chicken breast, a variety of spices, and 2 large bags of frozen corn at 80minutes of cooking time with 19 minutes of depressurization and Viola! Spicy, Juicy falling apart chicken breast to dress up anyway you want! And enough leftovers for a couple of days! (Family of four with teens and pre-teen) I highly recommend it!!!!!

I purchased one for myself and love it so much that I purchased this one for my son. But he had already bought one for himself. I’m not sad, it means I have 2. With the holidays coming up I’m sure both will be very useful. I’ve always wanted a pressure cooker but was afraid of them. With all the safety features the Instant Pot has I’m not afraid to use it. Hard-boiled eggs, rice, stews, chicken, and vegetables – all have come out fabulous! It’s best to do some research to learn how to use it at first. There is a very helpful Fb group should you have any questions.

This was a good purchase. Especially for meal prepping. The instruction manual is pretty good, but I recommend you watch a youtube video on the product and how to use it. This is a game-changer for those that are short on time due to busy schedules.
